My girls (and guy!) went out to their coop this afternoon. They're just 5 weeks, but since they're outgrowing the brooder and the inside of the coop is basically finished (except for nest boxes and completing the roost...it's only half done), I decided that I would finish up their brooding in there. I'm a wreck...it's bordering on the ridiculous. I have to stop myself from going to check on them every few minutes, which isn't fun for me since it's dark out. They, on the other hand, seem to be loving it. They can flap around, jump on each others backs, and do that funny little random sprint without knocking into each other or the lid of the brooder. They don't cry with the light off, they've had it off mostly now for a while....only on if we have a cool night. The coop is (and has been) sustaining between 75 and 80 without the light for most of the day. I'm going to make sure it's still warm in a bit--the heat lamp is hooked up and ready to go if it's needed...just have to plug the extension cord in since we haven't wired the coop yet. I'm still having a hard time, though. I just checked on them and they were sleeping contentedly under the 'window seat'. Will they be able to find the water in the dark? They've only been in there a few hours. See, I must be going crazy as that's a silly question. UGH! How do you guys deal with it? LOL! I want my babies back in here NOW!
